New NASA rover to explore the Greenland ice sheet.  WTH?

http://www.dvice.com/2013-5-....e-sheet

Ok, so they can do it on Mars, and draw pretty pictures.  Now they want to go to Greenland?  Maybe GoBlue can shove it in a crevasse.   :)  

ETA:  To think his PhD adviser is now with NASA in some head mucky muck science position.  Hmmmph.
